Pickup wire gauge ?

Apologies as I'm sure this must have been answered many times previously but for the life of me I can't find search terms that return a suitable result.

Could somebody please tell me what the OEM Wire Gauge is thats used on the flexible wire connecting the pick up brushes/shoes to the motor terminals, on a standard scalextric car such as the super resistant porsche boxters. As I need to fit a few replacements.

Thanks in advance.

Thankyou both for you responses.

Do you think this may be suitable ? 28AWG TFE insulated Alpha Wire

I'm assuming that TFE insulation is Tetra-Fluoro-Ethylene (aka PTFE ) would this be flexible enough for the application do you think ?

This type comes in all sorts of colours too 28AWG PTFE Insulated Alpha Wire
Thanks Robb,

I thought the same about the plumbing tape too

Not sure I'm ever going to use up 30m of the stuff though particularly if I want 2 colours.... still I wonder if they'd do a couple of samples.

I might buy a reel, check it out, and if suitable cut it up and flogg the excess on a well known auction site for other enthusiasts. On the other hand I could just pay for the overpriced scalextric spare you mentioned previously.

Anyway thanks for taking the time to respond much appreciated (U 2 rick).
